Featured Community: Caledonia

by Jeremy Williamson

The Village of Caledonia, WI is located along Lake Michigan in the northeast corner of Racine County. The community, population 25,400, is known for its rural character, horse farms, and park system. Residents and businesses benefit from the community’s central location in Southeast Wisconsin. I-94 provides easy access to Chicago (73 miles to the South), Milwaukee (18 miles to the North) and other major Midwest cities. Area business and leisure travelers take advantage of the Caledonia’s proximity to Milwaukee’s General Mitchell International Airport (11 miles North) and Chicago O’Hare’s International Airport (62 miles South).

The Village of Caledonia seeks to grow the Village’s tax base by promoting quality residential, commercial, and business development to meet the needs of community residents and businesses. In 2018, the Village undertook a I-94 Corridor Land Use Study and updated its comprehensive plan to anticipate potential development along the Village’s western boundary at I-94. Water and sewer access along Highway K make the area attractive for future development.

Industrial development in the Village is clustered in two business parks:

Prime development site with over 20 acres on 900 feet of Lake Michigan shoreline available for redevelopment. Located in a primarily residential area. Tax Increment District #5 was formed to facilitate development of the property into a residential use. The plan includes assisting with property acquisition and demolition and infrastructure improvements.
